Rolling stock involved in the accident:

 

Class HT80000 high-speed electric multiple unit (Siemens - 2nd generation Velaro, built between 2013 and 2015)

 

Class E68000 (unit 68 041) electric locomotive (Hyundai Rotem, built between 2013 and 2015)

 

Also visible in the video (at around 0:17), altough it does not seems to have been involved in the accident, is a Class E23000 commuter electric multiple unit (Hyundai Rotem, 2009) of the Baskentray commuter railway line (the station where the accident happened is Marsandiz, wich serves the Baskentray line).

Folks, 

Whew! A nasty looking stack!

Thanks to Socimi for giving us details of the stock involved.

It appears that things aren't too good with the Turkish railway system!

Folks, 

I see also news of a tram derailment on a curve  in Lisbon, Portugal, with many injured.

From the video, the style of the windows  and the fact that the car body is in pieces suggests that it might have been one of the for-wheeler vintage cars that run in Lisbon.

Yavianice, 

Thanks for that, I'd picked it up a bit earlier on. 

The map is not much use, no railways shown!

Oh sorry. didn't notice that I sent the same link. In my defense the article has been updated since I first posted it.
